Yes, you will be "Home for the Holdays" in downtown Oak Park this Saturday, December 18th from 10 am - 3pm.  Starting at 10 am is a Free screening of "Prancer" at the Lake.  Get there early for the best seats.  Then move on to Marion and Westgate Streets, the pick-up and drop-off point for the Free horse drawn sleigh rides.  While you're touring, keep an eye out for Santa, he may just be strolling our downtown streets!  The Canterbury Carolers, a seven-person Victorian ensemble will be out and about performing pre-1870 carols for your pleasure.  There's also an Ice Sculpture Demonstration by award-winning Robert Childers.  Don't forget to stop in the Warming Tent, open from 11 am - 3pm, and get a Free cup of Trader Joe's hot chocolate.  There will be so much to see and do.  For more information, visit www.downtownoakpark.com
